Mt. CB 13 Expedition

About Expedition

Team of 6 young mountaineers of Giripremi attempted Mt. CB 13 in Lahaul Spiti region of Himachal Pradesh during July 2017.

The team in their first attempt managed to reach just below 400 m from the summit. Due to bad weather and depleted team, the attempt had to be abandoned. However, expedition leader Vivek  Shivade, made a brilliant reattempt and reached the summit just in 4 days.


  • CB 13 is the highest peak in Chandra Bhaga range of Lahaul Spiti region
  • It is a semi technical peak with some rock and ice sections to negotiate. 
  • The peak is the witness to one of the terrifying Indian Air Force plane crash tragedy where over 18 soldiers had martyred on the glacier.

Leader – Vivek Shivade

Team Members – Pawan Hadole, Sanket Dhotre, Jayant Wakode, Varun Bhagwat, Lokesh Shinde
